Got my order from Aquacave.com today.
So I have a Reef Octopus BH100F skimmer (still in box), and Nitrate, KH
, and Magnesium test kits by Salifert.
Did some testing again tonight:
Ammonia: 0.25ppm (checked it twice to make sure)
: 14.4dkh higher than I expected
Didn't check phosphates again, as the number would be irrelevant while cycling and I wasn't curious about it.
I'll open up the skimmer tomorrow and get some pics of it. And add an updated tank shot (still looks the same though).
Could my ammonia already be going down? It only peaked to 1ppm. I have cycled fw
tanks before, but with plants, so it wasn't a typical cycle. Just making sure I can believe what I see.
I know the cycle isn't over...just happy ammonia is falling.
